If you know you’ll need a Pivot Chart when you start creating a Pivot Table, Excel Video 330 shows you how to create a Pivot Chart and a Pivot Table at the same time. You don’t have to create a Pivot Table first and then create a Pivot Chart. If it helps you visualize your data, you can create a Pivot Chart from scratch while you create the Pivot Table.
Whether you do your Pivot Chart at the same time as the Pivot Table or if you prefer to create the Pivot Table first, play with Pivot Charts. The ability to visualize the data can lead to insights that can be hard to see with Pivot Tables alone.
